J.B. McGeeabout this book: I would compare this novel with others that have had such a great impact they have ultimately been made into motion pictures. -The Book Enthusiast
A story of not just romantic love, but rather all four types of love, Skipping Stones spans a fifteen year period and is set in the historic mill town of Graniteville, South Carolina. It has a strong message of survival, hope, and second chance love. The story has crossover potential into multiple genres, such as military romance, inspirational romance, and contemporary romance. However, more than half focuses on the YA genre.
Skipping Stones was inspired by an experience I had when I was younger. There was a boy I liked. Just when I thought he had started to reciprocate those feelings, he was gone. No forwarding address. No information as to how to keep in touch. I went on vacation, came home, and there was a for sale sign in the yard. I was devastated. I realized I had a story there.
The book also showcases the close relationship I shared with my own grandparent's through Alex's relationship with hers. Memaw and Papa in Skipping Stones were my Memaw and Papa. The setting is also very personal. The title has double meaning, and it's something that by the end of the novel should be clear to the reader.
